Local towns will see hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of safety improvements. 
 
Governor Tom Wolf announced Monday, that 109 municipalities will receive $12 million to underwrite the costs of upgrading traffic signals under PennDOT’s “Green Light-Go” program. 
 
More than $340,000 of that will go to local towns in Bedford, Blair, Cambria, and Centre Counties. 
 
“State and local partnerships like this are critical to improving traffic flow and safety across the state, and this program helps us meet that goal,” said Governor Wolf. “Through this investment, communities across the state will benefit from upgraded signals and intersections.”
 
Under the Green Light-Go program, projects on corridors with fewer than 10,000 vehicles per day will be managed by the municipality, and PennDOT will manage any project with signals on corridors that have greater than 10,000 vehicles per day. Both types of projects will require a 50 percent match from the municipality.
